Coffee first arrived in Guatemala in the 18th century with Jesuits to the monasteries of Antigua. Estates began to spread over the following 150 years, primarily owned by European colonists. The country gained independance in 1821 and coffee production soared, making Guatemala an important coffee producer. A quarter of the Guatemalan population are in some way involved with growing or processing coffee.
